Saw my Consultant today, 1st time after seeing him in January & he confirming I had RA. went armed with lots of questions & every ache & pain & symptoms I ve had since. I don't know what he thought when I brought my little book out!
He was pleased my bloods all looking good & going down. though still got tender joints on my hands/fingers. though swelling still slight on right hand. He decide to put me on Sulphasalazine? don't know anything about this one. have to sit down & read the leaflet he gave me. Already on MTX & Hydroxy. So more tablets to take.
Spoke about my dry eyes etc, said he thinks I have Sjorgens Syndrome as well, wants me to get artificial tears.
I spoke to him about the pain Im getting in my lower back/hips, he said he thinks I have a lower disc problem, after examining me. He is going to write to my Dr, and to speak to the Physio next week when I see her.
I just feel as if Im falling apart!! Im beginning to feel really old now, what else can go wrong!!!
Feeling really low & down tonight. I was only diagnosed 6 months ago & since it seems all of a sudden as if Im going downhill fast.
Sorry just in need of some hugs
